City of Vero Beach Returns To Chlorine Water Disinfection Process

Graphic for water disinfection press release

On June 10, 2018 the City of Vero Beach Water Treatment Plant resumed its normal method of disinfection by adding chloramines to your drinking water.
From May 13th through June 9th disinfection was temporarily changed to the use of free chlorine. We have now resumed adding a combination of chlorine and ammonia.
You may expect that the water delivered to your home will contain both free chlorine and chloramines until all the water currently in the water distribution system is replaced by the water we are now producing. This process may take up to one week. During this period you may notice an unusual chlorine taste or odor in your water. This is only a temporary condition. This temporary condition will not cause adverse health effects. Your water will remain safe for drinking and other normal uses. There is no need to boil your water or purchase bottled water.
Customers who use kidney dialysis machines should be aware that their water may contain chlorine, ammonia, or a mixture of the two during this period. Other specialized users of water such as tropical fish owners, businesses, hospitals, and blood/dialysis clinics, may need to make adjustments in their operations in order to continue to maintain their present water quality parameters.
If you need further information, please call the City of Vero Beach Water and Sewer Department at (772) 978-5220.
